SODA BLASTING is a remarkable new technology. The soda serves as a mild abrasive that will remove or etch paint, remove mold, remove rust, or remove soot from framing and substructures. The soda is dispensed from a machine (blast pot) that is specifically designed to perform the low-pressure, high volume soda blasting operation. The blast pot propels the blasting media onto the area requiring surface preparation.
This process removes surface matter and contaminate without harming the substrate surface. The baking soda is applied to the surface to be cleaned through a specially designed, pressurized hose and nozzle. It obtains its air pressure and air volume from a mobile construction air compressor. Soda blasting has many applications for removing paint, coatings, contaminants and odors. It can also be used to clean and deodorize fire and smoke damage in buildings.
Why Use Baking Soda?
Sodium Bicarbonate is a non-hazardous food grade material that is 100% water soluble and environmentally friendly.
It’s granular - suitable for use in pressure pots, cabinet systems and as an additive for pressure washer systems.
It’s sharp - baking soda crystals delivered under relatively low pressure but at high velocity will scour virtually any coating from any substrate.
It’s friable - meaning it fractures into smaller particles, intensifying the cleaning action while softening the impact on substrates.
It’s relatively soft - with a Moh’s hardness of 2.5, it will not damage most substrates.
It’s has a benign pH of 8.2 - which provides a superior worker and environmental profile, before, during, and after use.
